No place like home...
Home for me feels like Portugal...... I love the weather, culture, people, and especially the shopping!

An 8 day trip with my sister was all about relaxing, catching up with my friends and just enjoying the sunshine.  I couldn't resist taking some photo's though.....

A combined culotte jumpsuit with super fine strap detail, a simple pair of black sandals and added accessories ... ready for dinner!  Accessories included the fresh white Parfois clutch, black leather Massimo Dutti watch and a beautiful feather hair wrap!  I have been hunting for a hair wrap for ages, and I found this beauty on a braid stall in the old town in Albufeira!

Photography taken overlooking one of my favourite beaches ... São Rafael beach, Portugal.

Black & White
Monochrome...... simple, complimentary and effortless colours.

Not quite Spring yet.... it can be hard to brighten up a Winter wardrobe. White?  Not quite a bright colour, but today's highlight to my all black look. 

One of my favourite shops at the moment is Stradivarius, they offer great basics and printed pieces.  This tailored white blazer/jacket, pair of geometric print trousers and basic black roll-neck top all from Stradivarius created today's look.

Added Accessories?  Shoes, bags and jewellery are always important to me and unfortunately where I have expensive taste!  I always think with clothes you can mix and match but accessories you have to spend a little more.  

A leather pair of monk strap Massimo Dutti shoes with studded detail, a leather crocodile skin Modalu crossbag and a dainty gold layered Zara necklace were my treats for today's outfit!

Treat yourself!! x

Winter Warmers
One of my new years resolutions ......to continue to visit new places!

With some time off over the festive period (and having eaten a little too much!)...... I visited The Friars in Aylesford.  A frosty morning, bluebird sky, I took in the fresh air and the beautiful grounds.  An ancient religious house of the Order of the Carmelites dating back to the 13th century, it was peaceful, relaxing and tranquil.

As the frost lay over the grounds, I was sure to wrap up warm! Nothing better than a roll neck jumper (to keep your neck warm) and some simply skinny jeans.  Plus my new navy knit cape which was a present for Christmas.  Double knitwear!!

After the frost....hopefully comes the snow?!!  I hope!  Stay warm everyone!
